HID Conversion Kit


I am looking at fitting a HID conversion kit to my Alfa and just wondering if anyone could direct me to a good kit that isnt too expensive and that allows me to just simply connect to the existing wiring of the car.

Also a kit that doesnt fail the MOT test, as I know that some kits are too bright

My car details

Alfa Romeo 1.6 Lusso 55Reg

Scroll down to this Thread "Hid or Not to Hid - that is the question?"


If you look on here, there are some links and information on kits. I am booked in end of the month for mine, so I've added a link to the kit I bought (My Inde has used these kits nw).

I bought a HID kit over 7 months ago and still have not fitted it. I am not sure if it will end up blinding other road users or if it will be an MOT issue. There has been several discussions on here about them and on other forums and I still can’t make my mind up.

I think it'll be part of the MOT test from 2012 onwards that cars fitted with HID's must have auto leveling and sloshers. As any car retrofitted with HID's would be very unlikely to have auto leveling it should fail.

However the MOT testers I've spoken too aren't quiet so hot on the idea. I think it would be a case of knowing the tester...
